Winemakers Comments

The lead up to the 2019 vintage was tricky given the drier than average winter in 2018, which lead to early frost in Nuriootpa and a much drier than average continuation throughout the growing season. Fortunately, our Merlot vines escaped major loss due to frost. The ensuing summer dry weather has created a wine with structure and elegance, and some subtle fleshy notes to balance this. - Jules Ashmead & Brock Harrison

This has bright red-plum and blackcurrant aromas with some blue flowers, too. The palate has a smooth, velvety core of blueberries. Plenty of depth and blueberry flavor. Fresh and quite concentrated finish. Drink over the next five years.
